It looks like "Sprinter" to me, but I'm not familiar with that brand.

That's because it's a generic, cheap, department store "brand". The kind of thing Home Hardware or Eaton's would sell for $99 with a big orange flag on the back.

Really? that is interesting. I don't know a lot about Mixtes though but thanks.

though I was perplexed as the seller said they bought it new last year for $300 and I didn't think any of the new mixtes came at that low a price point
